The Tai cuisine is characterized by lightly prepared dishes, unusual ingredients, and rather spicy taste. It is very detailed and the serving here is extremely beautiful. They combine the incongruous components mixing fruits with salt and relatively fatty products, creating the sweet sauces and trying to keep the balance of tastes.
There are soups, salads, fish, and, of course, meat dishes in this cuisine. And all of them can be rather nutritious even for the dinner much less for breakfast. The garlic is often used. And the basis of many sauces is a lime juice – so piquant and tropical. In serving the bright colors are applied like sliced red chilies, green parsley, yellow mango, and white rice.

This time is intended not only to satisfy hunger but also to hang out with friends, discussing the events and so on. Thus, you can apply this perfect example of healthy pork recipes for dinner to entertain your guests.

Make all the components mixed properly.
Put them over the heat and cook for a couple of hours over a low heat until the pork gets tender. Stir the lime juice in.
When thirty minutes left start making a kind of salad of pineapple, mint and lime juice.
Boil noodles following the instruction specified on the package.

We do not recommend replacing the lime with a lemon. Though, they are both citrus fruits, the piquant and particular aroma of the former is the central of the recipe. Remember that lime bursts with vitamin C and antioxidants enhancing immunity.
